Please take the time to fix the following:
  • Main file name: The principal plugin file should be the same as the plugin slug ("better-editor.php" instead of "index.php")
  • Text Domain: The text domain is optional since WordPress version 4.6; if you do specify it, it must be the same as the plugin slug
  • Domain Path: The domain path points to an invalid folder, "/languages" does not exist
